  • Appeal of traditional sunshine destinations remains strong (Taylor Wimpey España)
New Delhi, May 31, 2019: Property sales in Andalusia shot up by 19.7% in the year to March 2019, according to the latest figures from Spain’s National Statistics Institute (INE). It seems that buyers just can’t get enough of the sun-kissed coastline, which is home to perennial favourites such as the Costa del Sol.
Leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España has been building holiday homes along the Spanish Mediterranean coast for the past 60 years and has a deep-rooted understanding of just what it is that keeps holidaymakers and second home buyers coming back for more.
“There’s no single factor that makes the Costa del Sol so appealing – rather, it’s the way that the area blends so many charms into one overall package. The beautiful climate is of course a major draw, as are the area’s outstanding Blue Flag beaches and multiple golf courses. The charm of the local towns is another key factor, as is the fantastic cuisine. And all of it at some of the most affordable prices in Europe.”
Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España
Spain was the only country to enjoy three entries into the Post Office Holiday Costs Barometer in 2019, which ranks the cheapest holiday destinations in Europe. Torremolinos, Benidorm and Alicante made it in at positions four, five and ten respectively.
Not only that, but areas such as the Costa del Sol enjoy easy access from a wide range of European countries, ensuring that second home owners can quickly and cost effectively reach their properties. In 2019, doing so will be even easier, thanks to Jet2’s planned 10% expansion over the course of the year. The additional routes and flights will see the airline offering eight million seats between the UK and Spain. It follows Jet2’s growth of 20% during 2018.
Interestingly, Jet2’s expansion will see 54.3% more seats offered out of season during 2019, meaning that second home owners will find it even easier to enjoy their holiday properties year-round. Savills states in its latest Impacts: The Future of Global Real Estate report that “Air routes continue to have a profound impact on where people want to go and where people want to buy.” As such, the Jet2 expansion is excellent news for Spain’s tourism industry as a whole, as well as for areas such as the Costa del Sol which will benefit from increased seat numbers.
“One of the other appeals of the Costa del Sol is the sheer variety of holiday home options available. Buyers can opt for key-ready homes for instant holiday gratification or buy off-plan and enjoy having an input into the design process of their new second home.”

Taylor Wimpey España offers both key-ready properties and off plan options along the Costa del Sol. La Floresta Sur is an excellent example of the former. The key-ready homes are available from €222,000 plus VAT. Just 0.5 km from El Soto Golf Club and within easy reach of Elviria Beach, the apartments are ideal for buyers looking to purchase and enjoy their second home as soon as possible. Taylor Wimpey España’s Horizon Golf site, in La Cala Golf Resort and Botanic, in Benahavis, are both also available for buyers looking to enjoy their second homes this summer, offering panoramic views in tranquil areas.
For those who prefer to buy off-plan, the outstanding three-bedroom homes of the latest phase of Green Golf are ideal. The frontline golf townhouses with southwest-facing terraces are available from as little as €280,000 plus VAT. All of these sites also feature communal swimming pools and prettily landscaped grounds.
